1600 Horsepower Jeep Sets World Record For Driving On Water

Icelandic Formula Offroad driver Gudbjørn Grimsson just set the first officiated longest distance for hydroplaning earlier this month. How'd he do it? Bucket scoop tires, four wheel drive, and a 1,600 horsepower twin turbo Nelson Racing engine.

Gudbjørn managed 1,001 feet across a river and he only happened to do it in a race.

Here is the face he made after the run.
